Knowledge Beginnings centers are owned and operated by Portland, Oregon-based KinderCare Education, the nation’s leading private provider of early childhood education and care. The Township, in presenting the award to Knowledge Beginnings Director Jennifer Cmielewski, recognized Knowledge Beginnings as a commercial establishment situated in a highly visible prominent location on major Township roads, for keeping its property and building well maintained and landscaped and free of litter, thereby enhancing the municipal appearance and environment. The purpose of the award is to recognize a local business that has made special efforts to keep East Windsor Township litter free.
